The new upgraded pickup you will find on American Standard Fender Precision Basses from late 2012 to present. Very punchy and there is a boost of

    I bought this pickup along with an Art of Tone wiring kit to upgrade the electronics in an MIM Fender Precision. All I can say is this is what a P-bass is supposed to sound like. Full and strong bass, a slight scoop in the mids, and enough treble but not too much. It's not the cheapest P pickup around, but it's not ridiculously expensive either. I think I got my money's worth.

    Pros
    • + - Fender sells them separately rather than you having to buy the Am. Std. just for the pickup. - Cloth-covered wiring makes it sturdy and unable to snap easily - Screws included.
    Cons
    • - - Kind of expensive, but I've seen pricier. - Foam not high enough for my liking
    I've played around with many P-Bass pickups, from stock MIM to QPs, to AVRI'63s....but I can say the CS'62 pickup by Fender are my favourite sets.

    The output on the website says 6/4/6 (B/M/T), but I don't hear a loss or reduction in the mids. It's audible and gives the bass more punch. The lows are not lost while the highs are given a small boost so you can get some sick plectrum sounds or slapping tones.

    55 USD
